    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in February 2009.

    Interview

    The initial phone interview took approximately 45 minutes, where we talked about research and potential projects to work on. My advisor invited me to visit Duke for a look around campus and to have interviews. I had about 7 one-on-one interviews with other faculty that lasted about 30 minutes each. I then met with my potential advisor for a couple of hours and mainly talked about research. The interviews were pretty informal, with mostly scientific talk, little personality questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Mumbai (India)).

    Interview

    Was an amazing experience. The interviewer tried to genuinely find out more about my experience and strengths and weaknesses. It was holistic and satisfactory because they didn't get hung up on one or two of my resume sections but covered everything systematically. They tried to see if I fit into the Duke eco system and would uphold the Duke brand

    Interview

    Duke PhD recruiting is different from other graduate programs. Doesn't matter how qualified you are, they match you with a professor... if there's no match, you won't get in. If you get the interview (campus visit), you're basically already in.
